Amsterdam Canal Cruise

On the morning of our last day in Holland we went on a canal cruise in Amsterdam.

There are a lot of choices for boat trips around the city, so we chose one which passes most of the main attractions in one trip :)

Starting near the Centraal Station the cruise first headed out into the harbour for a look at some interesting spots along there.

After the harbour we head back into the canals through another entrance, and from then on it feels like just travelling along the streets hehe.

It’s very interesting taking a trip through waterways like this which a lot of nice bridges to pass under, and up above all around you there are really nice buildings to see on your way past ^^

Later in the day the Gay Pride Parade was due to take place….we didn’t even know about it before ^_^;

Because of this part of the route was changed as the parade takes place along the water, but we saw many people preparing their boats for the parade, so it was fun seeing that.
